If you are concerned about climate change and you are not sure who to vote for to address your concerns, you might consider the following quotes on the Lib Dem manifesto.

Greenpeace executive director John Sauven said: "The Liberal Democrats have set out the most progressive environmental policies of all the major parties, and they now have a real chance to make them count...This party could establish red lines on issues like Heathrow and coal power, and focus instead on developing the clean technologies that will define the 21st century."

Friends of the Earth executive director Andy Atkins said the Lib Dems had shown the environment "can be at the heart of policy-making". He continued: "Their environmental policies have been woven into their economic recovery plans, recognising that building a low-carbon future will create thousands of new green jobs and business opportunities for Britain," said Friends of the Earth executive director Andy Atkins.

This strong endorsement from two of the pre-eminent environmental groups in the country contrasts rather starkly with the news this week that the Conservative Environment Spokesman has opposed plans for two recycling plants planned on former industrial sites in his constituency. David Cameron's task of convincing voters that his party has changed is under increasing pressure.
